“The University of Wonder and Imagination” is now enrolling students of all ages and magical abilities... and there’s a place with your name on it!


Journey to one of the most unusual universities, where the mysterious Professor Bamberg sends you off on a self-navigated quest where nothing is quite as it seems!

Interact with the liveliest of lecturers, choose your subjects of study, enter themed rooms and encounter all kinds of problems and puzzles, unlocking magical powers as you go. You’re bound to leave this hallowed center of magical learning with a boggled mind and bamboozled brain.

This brand-new type of virtual event is directed completely by you. The choices you make – live! – will shape your unique experience. In this ambitious and unique undertaking, Cahoots NI will broadcast from an extensive set where magic and illusion have no boundaries and bring a fun-filled, immersive theatrical experience directly to you.
